Need to check to see if we went to the same restaurant that all these four and five star reviews are talking about. Had lunch here. Granted we asked for patio dining but worse than the flies were the grackles. Suggest they put up some screening to keep the birds out. Hubby ordered seafood mix (2 fillets, 2 oysters, 2... More

Stopped in for first visit for lunch. Notice 'different' smell when coming in - not necessarily bad but.... Both wife and I ordered a cup ($8/ea) of the seafood gumbo. It had plenty of file' taste with pieces of shrimp, fish, and smoked sausage. Wife really liked hers but the fish in mine was extremely fishy - not good. I... More

Busy, good fried shrimp, very good coconut shrimp and the best Longisland Tea I have had in awhile. Be patient with man a the bar, he does good. It's a bit of a dive that you can enjoy great food and drinks.

We really enjoyed the "Valentine's Day" special. The fish was excellent and it was great to have grilled shrimp instead of the fried offered at many other places. The staff is friendly and efficient. And the bathrooms are clean! 👏🏻

My daughter, husband and my daughters friend and I went here to eat on Monday cuz a lot of places are closed on Mondays. The waiter Steve was amazing and funny. Food was great however I about fell off my chair when we got the bill. It was well over 100.00 dollars and we had to tip on top of... More

We've been here multiple times. The grilled food has been the best on their menu. We ordered the fried basket this time and there wasn't much flavor. They are on the pricey side. The seating outside is nice.

Had dinner here on a quiet Thursday evening. I ordered the grilled red snapper ($23.99) which was good, just a tad overcooked. The sides, fresh zuchinni and squash were ok. Should have sauteed them and added a bit of cheese. Would have improved them tremendously. The rice was also ok, a bit greasy and not allot of taste. My wife... More

The food here is good and we really like that they have a salad bar. Only downside is we think it is kind of pricey for what you get but that's normal in a touristy location. Will be back one day I'm sure.
